  • Description
  • Contents

This publication follows the phenomenal success of not only the four editions of the Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code published by ASME Press, but also two related updated volumes.

Thus, this is the third book that is also a “standalone-publication,” addressing Global Applications of the ASME B&PV Code. This book not only updates information of 16 chapters of the third volume of the third edition of the Companion Guide, but has additional 5 chapters selected for their unique features of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes used internationally.

This book has five parts addressing Global Applications of ASME B&PV Codes and Standards covering:

Part 1 : North America and Western Europe which includes Canada, France, UK, Belgium, Germany, Spain and Finland in addition to the Pressure Equipment Directive of the European Union Countries.
Part 2 : Central and Eastern Europe includes Russian, Czech and Slovakian Codes and Hungary.
Part 3 : South Africa.
Part 4 : Asia including Japan, Korea, Taiwan, India and China.
Part 5 : Special Topics is addressed by ASME Code experts to cover in four chapters:

1. Global Harmonization of Nuclear Codes and Standards;
2. Global Flaw Modelling Characteristics;
3. AREVA’s perspective of spent fuel storage in a “A Case Study of Dry Storage System for Used Nuclear Fuel; and finally in last chapter
4. Has three parts in “Utilities’ perspective of spent fuel storage” – the first one is covers ENTERGY, the second part Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) and the last part has Ontario Hydro’s experiences. Thus different perspectives of the Spent Fuel Storage which are critical to the continuation of nuclear industry are addressed by various experts in this chapter.

An index is provided at the end of this publication as a quick reference to topics occurring in this volume which will assist in reviewing the interconnection of the ASME Boilers & Pressure Vessel Code Sections / Subsections / Paragraphs to each country covered in addition to the special topics addressed in this book. In each chapter, discussions generally pertain to the current Code Editions of the country covered and latest ASME Codes and Standards unless noted otherwise by the chapter author(s).
